Hey, midweek update because I didn't get much time to work on the game over the weekend, but today I've mainly been working on:
- Some fixes and tweaks to the new modding and sweat features.
- Setting up her ears and eyebrows to enable different options, and sketching some quick examples.
- Sketching out a new character hair (not in the screenshot yet).
- Testing out a random freckle slider.
Updates are probably going to be slow while I'm working on new characters, so after next weekend I might start doing fortnightly updates instead. I think it would be better to have something good to see each time instead of rushing features or delaying the update, but I'll see how it goes.
I'm going to read through last week's comments now, and I'll update this post with any specific replies, but here a a couple of quick answers to the more common requests:
Dynamic breasts - The prototype for these was a long way off being ready for the game, so it wouldn't make sense to spend ages working on them unless they were massively popular. I might still come back to them at some point, but for now hopefully the body mods will help.
Futa models for him and her - The main concern for me with these is that they might mean a massive amount of work on costumes. I have some ideas for reducing the changes needed for her, but to add any costume options for "him" is obviously a pretty big job (and I'm already fairly slow at drawing new options for her). If people are happy to just have a new body model with minimal options though, I can probably reuse a lot of the existing elements.
His left arm - I've delayed this mainly because I'm trying to work out a way for it to be controllable without just getting in the way (and partly because I can't draw hands). I want to keep the game playable just using the mouse as much as possible. I'm thinking of having his arm normally hang free, with a switch to a bukkake style mode triggered by holding the mouse to the far left for a couple of seconds.
Opening modding files - You need a copy of Flash Pro to edit or create mods for the game.
Other dialogue character sets (like Cyrillic) - I've been trying to make Flash use a system font for characters that aren't included in the default, but I might have to add an option to just switch fonts, because this doesn't seem to work properly yet.
Sweat / strands making clothes transparent - This is a really good suggestion. I have an idea for how it could work, but it would probably be limited to tops at first, because it needs everything to be on the same layer. I'll try to test it out when I have more time.
Graphical bugs on costumes - There are a few costume elements (like the thong) which break at certain angles. I could fix the problems just for those, but I'm trying to find a fix that works for every option instead of making lots of individual changes.
Modding him - I'll add swf mods for him soon, I'm just waiting because I don't want to break people's mods, and I'm probably going to change some things while working on new bodies.
